Review: What is Industrial Society like? Cities Working Life? Living Conditions? Art? Not referring to “romance” between people in a relationship Romanticism – An artistic style emphasizing imagination, freedom and emotion. Writers, artists, composers, and architects were part of the Romantic Movement Writers: William Wordsworth, William Blake, Lord Byron The Romantic Hero – “A mysterious, melancholy, person who feels out of step with society” – Doesn’t fit in with the new Industrial World… Lord Byron – “My Soul is Dark” My soul is dark - Oh! quickly string The harp I yet can brook to hear; And let thy gentle fingers fling Its melting murmurs o'er mine ear. If in this heart a hope be dear, That sound shall charm it forth again: If in these eyes there lurk a tear, 'Twill flow, and cease to burn my brain. But bid the strain be wild and deep, Nor let thy notes of joy be first: I tell thee, minstrel, I must weep, Or else this heavy heart will burst; For it hath been by sorrow nursed, And ached in sleepless silence, long; And now 'tis doomed to know the worst, And break at once - or yield to song. Music Ludwig van Beethoven – German Composer; composed music to stir deep emotions (just as poetry was intended to); Beethoven was the first composer to fully use the broad range of instruments in a modern orchestra. In the mid-1800s, Realism was a movement to present the world “as it was,” without the Romantic emphasis of emotions and imagination. Writers – Charles Dickens Oliver Twist – A novel that tells the story of a child surviving poverty, crime, and the mistreatment of children; His writing reflects what society is really like! Oliver Twist- Charles Dickens “The boy was lying, fast asleep, on a rude bed upon the floor; so pale with anxiety, and sadness, and the closeness of his prison, that he looked like death; not death as it shows in shroud and coffin, but in the guise it wears when life has just departed; when a young and gentle spirit has, but an instant, fled to Heaven, and the gross air of the world has not had time to breathe upon the changing dust it hallowed.” 1870s – “An artistic movement intended to capture the first fleeting impression made by an object on the viewer’s eye.” Artists: Claude Monet Vincent van Gogh (“postimpressionist”) Assignment: You will create a painting , drawing, or poem using one of the following three styles – Romanticism, Realism, Impressionist 1.
